Mike Sherman – Head coach
On December 20, 2017, Mike Sherman was named the 24th Head Coach in Montreal Alouettes history.
Sherman was the head coach of the Green Bay the Packers from 2000 to 2006. He lead the team to five consecutive winning seasons from 2000–04 compiling a 53–27 record, and a .663 winning percentage, which was the second highest in Packers history, trailing that of legendary Vince Lombardi. The Packers were only one of two teams to make the playoffs every season during that four-year span.
Between 2002 and 2004, he led the Packers to three consecutive NFC North Division titles. The Northwood, MA native led the Packers to break franchise records for rushing yards (2,558) in 2003 and passing yards (4,449) in 2004. In 2003, Packers quarterback Brett Favre led the NFL with 32 touchdown passes. The 2003 team also scored 442 points, which is the fourth highest total in franchise history.
In his six years with Green Bay, Sherman compiled a 57–39 regular season record. He was also the Packers General Manager from 2001 to 2004. He had joined the Packers organization in 1997 as the tight ends coach and followed Mike Holmgrem to the Seattle Seahawks in 1999, where he was the team’s offensive coordinator.
Sherman also was the Assistant Head Coach of the Houston Texans in 2006 and 2007, adding offensive coordinator duties during his second season in Texas. That season, the offence improved from 28th offence in the NFL to 14th and the Texans finished with a ,500 record for the first time in franchise history. More recently, he was the offensive coordinator with the Miami Dolphins in 2012-13.
Prior to joining the Packers, Sherman coached in the collegiate ranks, mainly as an offensive line coach. He made two stops with the Texas A&M Aggies from 1989 to 1993 and in 1995-96. He would later return to the Aggies from 2008 to 2011, this time as the head coach. He led the team to three bowl games and a conference division championship in four seasons. There, he coached future NFL quarterback Ryan Tannehill, all while recruiting six future All Americans, including Von Miller and future Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Maziel.
He also coached at Worcester Academy, the University of Pittsburgh, Tulane University, the College of Holy Cross as well as UCLA.
From 2015 to 2017, Sherman returned closer to home and accepted the challenge of becoming the head coach at Nauset Regional High School in Massachusetts.
He currently resides in Dennis, MA on Cape Cod with his wife Karen. The couple has five children, Sarah, Emily, Matthew, Benjamin and Selena.
